The notes of the Blues
In their 3-0 win over the Netherlands.
Mike Maignan (7)
He started his number 1 reign with a clean sheet and a penalty saved in the 94th minute! Before that, he didn’t have to make any hard saves. He repelled a free kick from Memphis Depay (58th) as best he could. Serene ball at the foot (and can do better).
Jules Kounde (6)
Particularly good defensively (especially in duels) during the first period. Little requested thereafter.
Ibrahima Konate (5.5)
Good and less good. He had little work to do and was imperial in duels. But he gave the first big Dutch chance (33rd) and made a big mistake to give the Oranje a good free kick (72nd). A great opportunity from the header released by Cillessen (36th).
Dayot Upamecano (6)
He scored EDF’s second goal in the 8th minute, opportunistic ahead of Cillessen. Defensively, he saved his team by countering Depay (15th) and hindering the former Lyonnais (33rd). He distinguished himself at the relaunch and Deschamps may be his new referent in this area. He ended up offering the 94th penalty (not transformed by Depay).
Theo Hernandez (6)
A great activity in his left lane, with two or three good combinations with Mbappé. However, he did not go all the way, even if a cross could have given a superb goal without the intervention of Cillessen (28th). A saving return to the feet of Berghuis (10th).
Aurelien Tchouameni (6)
He is not yet the big boss of his team in his role as a hub. He is credited with an assist on Mbappé’s first goal but giving the ball to Kolo Muani. On the other hand, defensively, he is still as good at scratching balls in dangerous areas.
Adrian Rabiot (7)
He had a rather incredible physical presence in the midfield battle and increasingly confirms his importance in this team (to make up for Mbappé’s lack of withdrawal). With the ball, he resisted the opposing pressure to relieve his people. Dangerous header from a set piece. He will score next time.
Kingsley Coman (4.5)
The Bayern winger had a particularly weak first period, with a lot of imprecision, and did not conclude on a cross from Kolo Muani (17th). He came back determined from half-time and offered an incredible overflow followed by a perfect cross for Kolo Muani (60th). Released in stride (67th).
Antoine Griezmann (7)
In great shape with Atlético, he gave everything for 76 minutes of play. He first opened the entry score (2nd) on a service from Mbappé to end a drought of 18 team goalless matches. of France. Before directing the game or coming to help his teammates in the middle battle. Tchouaméni and Rabiot adapt to the placement of “Grizi”.
Kylian Mbappe (8)
A double and a decisive pass for his first as captain of the France team! He first served Griezmann for the 1-0 (2nd), escaped on the 3rd goal (21st) and scored strongly on the 4-0 at the end of the match (88th). He didn’t make the ball too much on his left side, the game of the Blues being quite diversified.
Randal Kolo Muani (7)
A very promising start for the 24-year-old striker as the starting 9. They would have been perfect with a goal. The player trained at FC Nantes is also strong in hitting the ball at the foot, taking depth and even in deflection. He is precisely involved in the first 3 goals! He did not frame his volley on a cross from Coman (60th) and wasted a counter 15 minutes from the end (75th). Damage.

Alongside a Kylian Mbappé author of a double and a decisive pass (for Antoine Griezmann at the start), Randal Kolo Muani shone during this fine offensive performance against the Oranje. Established at the forefront of the attack by Didier Deschamps, the Frankfurt player was excellent with the ball and is involved in his team’s first 3 goals!
